Mikhail Yudzin is a businessman in Hrodna sentenced to 4 years in prison under Art. 364 of the Criminal Code (violence against a police officer). The charge stems from a protest held on September 27, 2020. Mikhail Yefimovich, Vadzim Khizhniakou and Andrei Seviartoka were also convicted in this criminal case.

According to the charges, Seviartok deliberately punched a riot police officer in the head and kicked him in the right leg. At this time, Yefimovich deliberately threw an unidentified object at the officer, which hit the chest. After that, Yudzin deliberately kicked and punched another riot policeman, including in the arm and the head. Khizhniakov deliberately threw an unidentified object at the officer, using it as an instrument of crime.

Mikhail Yudzin told the court that he and his wife were going to the cinema and went to a bar before the movie started. On the street, he saw people in black clothes dragging a man and several other people running away. Mikhail confronted the police officers by asking "What are you doing?". According to Yudzin, he was immediately gassed in his face and detained. His arm was broken, as a result. Mikhail was taken to a bus carrying riot police, where he was hit in the shoulder with a rubber stick and pushed on the floor.

He was then charged under Art. 364 of the Criminal Code. Mikhail was in custody before the trial.
